Publications

This page lists all of publications—books, technical journals, and more—in which I have something origami-related published. Click on one of the categories to the right to see publications in just that category. See articles I've written just for this site here.

Describes the design of a flasher composed of thick panels and membrane hinges for deployable solar arrays and related applications.

(2011) (with Patsy Wang-Iverson and Mark Yim) This collection of the latest academic research in origami and its connections to mathematics, science, technology, and education grew out of the 5th International Conference on Origami in Science, Mathematics, and Education, held in Singapore in 2010. It contains all-new work by the leading academic researchers from around the world whose work touches on origami, including three papers on which I am a co-author.

(2011) This new edition of Origami Design Secrets adds several diagrams for new models, 10 crease patterns for new designs, and new chapters on advanced box-pleating techniques, hex pleating, and polygon packing methods of origami design. ODS2e has 200 pages of new material not in the first edition, but I took out the chapter on mathematical algorithms, figuring most people would not be interested in big, hairy equations. If you are, not to worry: you can download that section.

(2011) (with John Montroll) This contains the other half of the models that were in Origami Sea Life, plus a handful of not previously published designs: from John, an Octopus and Parrotfish; from me, Hideko\'s Goldfish, Banded Angelfish, and Rock Lobster.

(2010) (with John Montroll) This contains about half of the models that were in Origami Sea Life, plus a handful of not previously published designs: from John, a Perch and Swordfish; from me, Tokinobu's Goldfish, Gourami, Ray, and Siamese Fighting Fish.
